Furman University in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Kevin H. Jones
Furman University in Greenville, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Test-Site, conceptual video artwork by Tulane University assistant professor Kevin H. Jones, on display in Furman University's Thompson Art Gallery through June 19, 2009.
Jones, who specializes in digital media at Tulane in New Orleans, explores the natural world through his art. He questions our understanding of the physical world and seeks to test and undermine scientific authority.
Jones likes to focus on scientific themes such as the structures of time.
He synthesizes various media in his projects, with the latest using video and sound technology. In the past five years, his work has shown a transition in media, from painting to two-dimensional digital prints. An early work used solar energy to power a fictional television station, for example.
The artist, who has degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University, the University of Texas at Austin and Yale University, has exhibited his work throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
Jones' work has been featured in ID Magazine, Idea Magazine, Neural Online and The New York Times. Most recently, he has shown his work at Stasjon - K in Norway, Ginza Geijutsu Laboratory in Tokyo and Redux Contemporary Art Space in Charleston, SC.
